Statue of Paul Keres - Ida-Virumaa

Statue of Paul Keres

The statue was installed for the 100th birthday of Paul Keres, an Estonian chess player and international grandmaster, is located on a square between Puškin Street and Peeter Square.
The authors of the statue are well-known Estonian sculptors Aivar Simson and Paul Mänd. Their idea was to make it possible for people to sit opposite to Keres behind the chessboard and think about the next move.
The statue depicts the game between Keres and Walter Browne in Vancouver in 1975. It mistakenly shows Keres playing with white pieces.
The sculpture is made of bronze.
